Hey Star Wars fans, Ben Schwartz is about to blow your mind. The former Parks and Recreation actor, who co-stars in The Walk (in theaters now), remained good friends with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams after working with him on the short-lived 2010 spy series Undercovers. So naturally, when Schwartz dropped by the Yahoo office, we had to ask: Could he give us any juicy Star Wars spoilers? Sure enough, the actor delivered: You be the judge as to whether you should actually expect to see these after watching the video above.
Schwartz exclusively revealed to Yahoo Movies that Chewbacca has a major role in the new Star Wars flick. Not only does the Wookiee co-pilot the Millennium Falcon, but at one point, he turns into Superman and fights Batman. That’s not all! It turns out that Batman has a secret identity no one could have guessed: a certain bald, albino teenager from mid-’90s cinema. Also, since Superman is played by Chewbacca, the quintessential American hero now speaks with Peter Mayhew’s “really sweet English accent.“
It’s possible that Schwartz is pulling our leg. But he wouldn’t lie about something as serious as Star Wars, would he? The Force Awakens hits theaters on Dec. 18.
